A teen who was critically wounded after a series of stabbings at Houston-area high school has been released from the hospital.
Deavean Bazile, 16, was taken by helicopter from Spring High School in Spring, Texas to Memorial Hermann Hospital after being stabbed in the side early Wednesday, My Fox DC reported. Bazile's condition was updated to "good" Wednesday afternoon, and doctors sent him home.
Bazile's father, Oscar Bazile, posted on Facebook Wednesday evening about his gratitude for the community support he received after his son was injured:

Joshua Broussard, a 17-year-old student, was killed at the scene. Two other students, whose names have not been released, suffered minor injuries.
Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia told the Associated Press that the stabbing, which occurred at 7:10 a.m. in a hallway on the high school campus, was the result of a "confrontation" that escalated into a "physical confrontation that produced weapons."
Garcia added that "some information" suggests the altercation "may have been gang related."
The only suspect in the stabbing, a 17-year-old boy whose name has not been released, is in police custody, according to Chron.com.
